Wynton Marsalis: Swinging into the 21st Century

Airs Tuesday, May 1 at 9:00 p.m. Jazz is dead! Well, it's not true -- but in the history of the music, that statement is heard very often. Wynton Marsalis has found that the best way to combat that idea is simple - keep creating. Like any art form, jazz lives as an ongoing interaction between the artist, audience and larger culture. In this hour, Wynton reflects on his life and music in the 20th century and its continuation into the 21st.

The Los Angeles Times writes of the festival – “perhaps the first thing to be praised about SummerFest is the exceptionally high quality of performances.” With performances from over 70 ensembles and musicians, the festival brings first rate concerts to what is essentially a small seaside town.
